People who have saved this event:


Under the backdrop of an exhibition of comics by Cath Garvey, the artist will lead a series of workshops focussed on making the comic book world more female focussed.


Inviting the young people of Knowsley to Kirkby Gallery, the artist will create new work, and lead others to design new characters, storylines and publications for exhibition in the town’s library. The comic industry is still male dominant and very biased towards men in both fiction and reality. Cath Garvey’s workshops aim to open options for young artists, and remind them that comic books aren’t just for boys, while teaching them the basics about comics and present self-publishing.
